On the Road to Honesty for KidsWhy should you support this campaign?Trust me, I speak by experience
: most families with children and schools -if not all of them- would highly benefit from this On the Road to Honesty for kids campaign even though many parents and educators do not realize it...yet.
I know it because I was raised in one of these really honest families. But it absolutely did not turned out that way. During my childhood I really suffered too many years trapped in my lies while nobody knew about it, and especially not my parents. One day I ended up at the hospital in really bad shape and that was my wake up call. And later the story repeated itself with my own children. Children Dishonesty is rampant in schools & at home: it's reaching epidemic level. And we can only see a small portion of it.
To give you an idea of what's going on, here are some worrying surveys results from high school children themselves that Michele Borba, a worldwide recognized parenting expert, reported here
SO LET'S MAKE A STATEMENT THAT CANNOT BE IGNORED!
- 1 in 3 boys and 1 in 4 high school girls say the stole from a store over the last year.
- 21% admit they stole something from a parent or relative; 18% say they stole from a friend.
- 92% of children believe their parents want them to do the “right thing” 80% say they lied to their parents about something significant.
- A majority of students (59%) admitted cheating on a test during the last school year with 34 percent doing it more than two times.
- One in three say they used the Internet to plagiarize an assignment.
Let's stop this dishonesty epidemic and let's stop what does not work with our children: "The Recurring Honesty and Trust Talk" that we improvise each time. It is not only not working well, it's also very often counter productive. Moreover, it's annoying for children and it's annoying for us, the adults!
Instead, let’s teach
honesty and trust to children in a fun, smart, efficient and empowering way.
Even the most well intented parents and adults can only see or discover the tip of the iceberg of our children lies.
Let’s help millions of children make bright honest
choices about honesty ….. instead of telling lies that will lead them to suffer,
in their head and in their heart, just because they don’t know how to do it differently and because they don't dare to tell it to their parents or other adults. Remember: honesty, integrity, credibility, trust,
reputation will play a major role in your child's future success in this "all connected world".
Their (dis)honesty and reputation will
follow them online wherever they go for their entire life and will impact how things will turn out for them personnaly and professionnaly.
So let’s help millions of parents and educators guide and
teach children to be bright about honesty... for the rest of their life.
